Hyderabad: Whatevner is happening in India is nothing but the gimmick of the circus.
Attempts are being made to tarnish the image of democracy by setting aside the constitution of India.
The main objective of implementing NRC is nothing but to target the poor, which include the Muslims, the tribals and Dalits.
The tragic situation is that no one is raising any voice against the atrocities which are being meted out to Minorities. This sort of attitude will not only be disadvantageous for us but it would prove to be very dangerous for the country.
These thought were expressed by Mr. Kanan Gopinathan of Kerala who relinquished the coveted position of an IAS officer as a protest against the polices of central Govt. in Kashmir.
He was talking to staff reporter of Siasat Urdu Daily in Hyderabad yesterday when he called the Editor of Siasat.
It may be mentioned that Govt. of India struk off Article 370 of the Constitution of India and divided J&K into two Union territories namely, Kashmir and Ladakh. Against this move, Mr. Kannan Gopinathan resigned from IAS on 23rd August 2019. His resignation is still pending with the Govt.
He told that no Govt. can with the hearts of the people by curbing the freedom of expression.
Replying to a question Mr. Kanan Gopithan told he has been included in the list of IAS officers who relinquished their positions protesting against the unjust polices of the Govt. of India.
He pointed out that earlier some IAS officers had resigned from service after Gujarat communal riots.
Referring to the implementation of NRC, Mr. Gopinathan told that it took six year to complete the process and it cost Rs, 1,600 to the Govt. exchequer.
Poor residents of Assam spent nearly Rs. 8000 crore set right their documents to prove their Indian citizenship. Despite all these efforts, the names of 19 lakh residents were dropped from NRC.
He cautioned that this exercise will be repeated throughout India. This is nothing but create an atmosphere of fear only for Minorities.
In response to another question, he told that the proposed citizen’s Amendment Bill is more dangerous than this. Its aim is also to target the Muslims.
He advised the youths to raise their voice against the unjust polices of the Govt.
He cautioned the Muslims that if they don’t raise their voice now, a day will come when they won’t be able to raise their voice.
